Best Diet for Huntington's

Monday, 19 December 2011 08:04 AM

Question: What is the best diet for a person who has Huntington's chorea? Should neural toxins like MSG and other food-derived amino acids be avoided? Should a person eat mostly raw food to avoid the generation of amino acids?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
Huntington’s chorea (also called Huntington’s disease) is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder that affects muscle coordination. The mechanism by which specific brain cells progressively die involves the same mechanism found in other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dementia and Parkinson’s disease — immunoexcitotoxicity.

While no one has adequately tested a specific diet and mix of supplements as a treatment for Huntington’s, based on the best scientific evidence it makes sense to follow a mostly vegetarian diet, avoid fluoride and mercury-containing seafoods, foods containing omega-6 (vegetable oils), and high-sugar foods and drinks.

Many supplements can reduce immunoexcitotoxicity. They include curcumin, quercetin, kaempferol, natural vitamin E, resveratrol, baicalein, niacinamide, magnesium, and vitamin D3.
